Layering The Lights In Your Bedroom
Layering your bedroom lighting means from ceiling lights to bed-side, to the nearby study table and none other than women’s favorite Dressing table is the key to creating the best lighting for your bedroom. This means finding the right balance between ambient, task, and accent lighting. By creating this balance, you will be able to create the lighting for any mood and any activity with the flick of a switch.
1) Ambient Lighting: This type of lighting helps you do your regular chores in your bedroom from cleaning, folding clothes, or making the bed. For starters, begin building your lighting foundation with ambient lighting, or general lighting. In terms of artificial lighting, ambient light is best achieved with ceiling fixtures like flat ceiling lights, chandeliers, pendant lights, etc.
2) Task Lighting: This type of lighting is required for your activities like reading, working or while using a dressing table for applying makeup, then consider layering on top of your general lighting with task lights. Consider bedside table lamps, low hanging pendants on either side of the bed, sconces, wall mounted task lights on either side of a headboard or other directional lighting placed above it.
3) Accent Lighting: Accent lighting draws attention and highlight features–like paintings, artwork–within a given space. For the bedroom, accent lighting acts as a version of ambient lighting, creating a cozy atmosphere. You can choose amongst wall sconces, tape lights or creative repurposing of other fixtures are a few ways to incorporate this feature in your bedroom’s light design.
Dimmers are important because if you have an only bright light source, it’s hard to transition into a relaxed sleep-mode. Here, a bedside lamp or sconce can ease your eyes into sleep or wake more gradually. Between low lighting to full brightness; a dimmer can accommodate multiple lighting needs.
While you layer your bedroom lighting, considering the type of bulb you’ll use for each fixture is very important. A bulb’s lighting intensity and the color it emits can positively or negatively affect your day to day activities. The suggested lumens for the bedroom range from 2,000 and 4,000, which may differ based on the type of ambiance you desire for your bedroom.
